I am trying to develop an application based upon a command.' (Applescript)

The command has to be initialized first, so if i type in terminal:
/cmd

it will open the terminal program and display this:
You are now using application, please select your option, 1, 2, or 3.
[Default 2]

After the application has started, I can tell it what I want to do.

What I cant do is this: /cmd option 2
I cannot pass the parameters after the command.
I need a way to initialize the command, and then run a command inside of the command I called.
Here is my code:

on clicked theObject
do shell script "/cmd"
display dialog "Command Started"
end clicked

Thanks for the help.

I decided to use a different approach by using terminal.
